Hi. I like listening and occasionaly watching mpc using a videoclip playlist. But..
When I press alt-tab away from mpc, mpc still uses lots of cpu cycles, as if it is still drawing. As a result rebuilding the screen, or even performing basic tasks in explorer is done very slow, even though I have a high end machine.
However, when I don't alt-tab, but minimize and maximize (to which mpc reacts with the same speed), there is no lag, and I can do everything in explorer very fast, so mpc isn't wasting cputime when minimized. I use default settings.
So. Can't you program mpc to behave like minimized when alt-tabbed (loss of focus)?
This would be a dramatic speedup fix for mpc and also for my daily life.
Thanks in advance.
